Dream pursued for Mike’s Place in Langley

Mona Newbauer, owner of Sweet Mona’s chocolate store on Second Street, has her eye on the vacant Mike’s Place building which holds a prominent spot in Langley at the corner of First and Anthes, across the street from the Dog House Tavern.

After the restaurant closed the bank took over the building, Newbauer said, and might part with it for $350,000, far below the original listing. “I have a dream for that building,” she said. Anyone wishing to help her follow that dream is welcome to a meeting Monday, June 10 at 6 p.m. at Mike’s Place, 219 First St. She said she’s been exploring ideas with Eric Richmond of Flat Iron Productions, Ed Gemkow of Gemkow Construction, John Joynt of Windermere Real Estate, Cindy Williams, CPA, Elizabeth Guss “and countless others.” For more information, call 360-221-2728.
